I was with a large group for dinner on a Saturday night. They were accommodating and seated us right away. The server was attentive, but NOT annoying. I wanted to eat light, so I ordered the french onion soup and a side of broccoli. Very tasty. There was a variety ordered within my party. The fish dinner, shrimp basket, and... More

There breakfast is very good for the $$, can beat it, a gang of us girls there at least twice a month, the service is good too...Two eggs, home fries, bacon or ham or sausage and toast for $3.95 is the best price in town...You can also sit out on the deck if you smoke which is a plus for... More

We came for a business dinner and had made reservations in advance. The staff were certainly not able to handle the number of our party in addition to other customers. Three entrees were cold and needed to be returned. Our waiter said "I watched them pull it off of the line, I don't know how it is cold." On the... More

Go here to meet family every Christmas Eve. They stay open for the afternoon crowd and everyone is very friendly. EXCELLENT fried chicken and soups. There are usually some creative daily specials. The decor has recently been freshened up and they have a bar, booths or tables. Have even added a couple of pub tables - I love those. As... More

I always get the same thing here...the Greek salad. It is large, filling and delicious and only $6. It used to be $5 before they renovated the restaurant, but even at $6 it is a steal. It comes with 2 dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) and grilled pocketless pita. I did get their spanikopita one time and although it was good,... More

Enjoyed breakfast here three different times. You can't beat a five dollar breakfast that includes eggs bacon and whole grain blueberry pancakes. I would certainly recommend as a great breakfast spot

I eat at the Reliance for breakfast at least once a week. The food is excellent, the service prompt and friendly, and the price is extremely reasonable. Where else can 2 people eat their fill, plus coffee, for less than $10.00?

I was just here with a friend and had a great lunch. The Club I had was excellent, and I am super-picky. Fresh meats and really good bacon. (also tried Reliance Burger, which was tasty) They have a great selection of beers on tap, and I had a Magic Hat with lunch, if that tells you anything. I have heard... More

I used to eat here all of the time when it was the old Reliance. Even more frequently I would dine at the bar on clam or wing or taco night(s). Part of the attraction was feeling that nothing had changed in the place for 50 years. And I thought they had great breakfasts and awesome sausage gravy. Now, its... More
